Canon 4409B002 Overview

The Extender EF 1.4X III from Canon is designed for select Canon EF mount L-series telephoto lenses. It increases the focal length of a lens by a factor of 1.4x while still delivering superb image quality. To ensure the best possible image quality in all shooting conditions, it combines redesigned optics, improved data communication between lens and camera and enhanced environmental protection. It is ideal for photojournalists and wildlife, nature and sports photographers who need to get close to distant and challenging subjects and it reduces the need to carry heavy telephoto lenses.

The Extender EF 1.4X III features seven optical elements in three groups and all optical elements have Canon's Super Spectra coating to reduce ghosting and flare. A new Fluorine Coating on the front and rear elements makes marks, such as spots left by water or fingerprints, much easier to clean than standard coatings.

To facilitate the accurate transfer of imaging data between the lens and camera body, the extender features an integrated processor which ensures all focusing, metering and ID information is available - allowing the photographer to capture balanced, well-exposed images. When combined with the latest range of premium Canon L-series lenses, these extenders enable AF accuracy even when capturing moving subjects. When attached, the 1.4x extender reduces the effective maximum aperture by 1 stop.

A carefully positioned lens release mechanism also makes it easy to mount the extenders quickly, reducing the time that the camera and lens are exposed to the environment. The extenders offer the exceptional build-quality expected from Canon's professional products, and are resistant to both dust and water, allowing photographers to use them in extreme shooting conditions.

Note: This converter is only compatible with fixed focal length L-series lenses 135mm and over, as well as the EF 70-200/2.8L, EF 70-200/2.8L IS, EF 70-200/4L, and EF 100-400/4.5-5.6L. Additionally, please see the lens and/or camera body manual for full autofocus compatibility information with the Extender EF 1.4X III.

Works well on my 70-200 L 3 also 400m 5.6 L. Only auto focuses on the 70-200 L 3

Works fine on R5 with EF/RF adapter

Used with an R5 and EF 100-400L lens and Canon EF/RF adapter. Picture quality is good and electronic connections work as expected. Focus is a tad slower with occasional hunting, but nothing significant. Nice way to get a bit more reach without spendng big bucks on a RF100-500L lens.

I have a Canon EF 400mm f/5.6. The Canon EF 1.4x Mrk III works flawlessly, AF speed is not affected, image quality is superb. There is no discernible performance difference when using it with my 5D Mrk III or 5D Mrk IV.

Excellent Optics - However, most misunderstand how to use an extender!

The Extender EF 1.4x, the 3rd generation has excellent optics and produces impressive images (So does its 2x sibling). The purpose for using this extender to enlarge the subject matter in the image frame. Not to reach long distances. Atmospheric interference means any haziness, or heat haze will only be magnified. This extender was designed for L lenses. It works superbly with the prime lenses. I have used it with the 300mm f/2.8 ver II, 500mm f/2.8 ver II as well as the 600mm f/4 ver II. In addition, I have used this extender with the EF 100-400mm ver II. The images this combo produces is amazing considering it is not a prime lens. If your goal is to extend your reach so you can take pictures of distant subjects and expect a clear and sharp image, you will be disappointed. Even a prime lens with the extended reach will have difficulty producing a clear image due to atmospheric conditions. However, if you are taking pictures of subjects such as birds, or aircraft that fit 1/2 of the frame and wish to have images that fill 3/4 or more of a frame at distances that are not effected by atmospheric conditions, then you will amazed by the results this combination provides. Note: on a zoom lens such as the 100-400mm ver II, your f stop will become f/8 and therefore you will only be able to use a small portion of the autofocus points and in lower models perhaps manual focus will be your only choice. This is where a mirrorless camera is the perfect solution as it will allow for use of all autofocus points. Also, because of the additional reach, you will need to increase your shutter speed and expect slower autofocus acquisition in low light. This is an excellent addition to ones photography tools, but needs to be used in appropriate conditions.

Excellent Tele-extender for Canon camera & lens products!

Connect Canon telephoto lenses and Canon DSL cameras with this tele-extender. The auto focus feature and the stabilizer feature continue to work when using this tele-extender. You lose one f-stop but it is a small price to pay for 40% more in focal length. This is my third Canon 1.4X.

extender 1.4x lll not sharp?

It appears to not be sharp at least at 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 and low apertures. Not surprised as I have had a few 1.4x extenders that have also proven to not be sharp. Very annoying...It may get sent back after I run a few more tests.

Works great with Canon EF 100-400mm on EOS R

Sharp. Fast, accurate autofocus with Canon EF 100-400mm, EF-EOS R control ring adapter, and EOS R. Reports correct focal length in meta data.
